COVID-19 Stay at Home Order

Much is being asked of all Californians. The COVID-19 virus is new in humans, and no one is immune. While it can be treated successfully in a majority of cases, the sheer number of people may severely stretch California’s available hospital space. We cannot let this happen.

As such, Governor Newsom issued an executive order for all Californians to stay at home. The order states that individuals working in "Critical Infrastructure Sectors" as defined by the federal government may continue work. Further, all dine-in restaurants, bars, nightclubs, entertainment venues, gyms and fitness studios, public events and gatherings, and convention centers shall be closed. 

The following services will remain open:

  • Gas stations
  • Pharmacies
  • Food: Grocery stores, farmers markets, food banks, convenience stores, takeout and delivery restaurants
  • Banks
  • Laundromat/laundry service

Yes, you may leave your home for limited reasons like exercise or to purchase essential supplies or if you work in one of these sectors or as a part of Critical Infrastructure. But largely, please stay home.

More information on the Governor’s order can be found at covid19.ca.gov, or by calling my office at (626) 351-1917.

We will get through this.

What do you do if you’re experiencing symptoms?
If you are experiencing any upper respiratory symptoms (cough, sore throat, sneezing, shortness of breath, or fever) the best thing for you to do is behave as if you have the virus and self-isolate until 72 hours after freedom of symptoms. If you want to see or talk to a doctor about your symptoms, please CALL AHEAD. Do you not go into any health care facility while experiencing these symptoms
